Staging to SELL
What is home staging all about?
Home Staging isn’t about making a house pretty, it’s about making it SELL. At Michelle Lynne INTERIORS Group, we know the art and the psychology behind the preparation and the merchandising of a property going on the market. Our approach for each project – whether vacant or occupied – includes a Customized Staging Design that maximizes the use of furniture, art & accessories to appeal to the demographics of the buying market in the specific neighborhood of the sale property. We consider list price, architecture, unique selling features and location when we address a staging; so whether the property is for sale in the Park Cities, Frisco, or the M-Streets, we don’t have a “one size fits all” package but will instead, tailor our approach for each project.

Still wondering why you should stage?
Because there is never a second chance to make a first impression! Home staging is a prime example of how this saying holds true. Over 93% of buyers start their search on line – so your listing must stand out above the competition simply to get them to the front door! And once that door opens and they walk through, a buyer typically takes only 10 seconds to make a decision regarding interest or a lack of. Grab their attention with a well presented property and encourage the buyer to keep walking through the space, imagining themselves living there. Statistically speaking, your house will sell 78% faster AND for 10% – 12% more money. Oh yeah, and the investment to stage may be tax deductible.
And of course, pictures speak 1,00o words so here is a quick before & after example.
